to be educated, be able to understand the big picture and understand the structure of capitalism, how it works. the cost of goods. i just have a passion. that means nothing. the most powerful and the most highly positioned people can have the same information i can have. i wasn't born in america. when i came to america, a few blocks down was a library and it was free. i could go in there and learn all the secrets of how to do everything and anything. it's your fault if you don't succe succeed. you cannot fail in america. never be the first one to do anything. you'll be the poorest guy in the room. don't be the first groundbreaker. it won't happen. let somebody else do market research and create a marketplace for you and just walk in and do it. in business, it doesn't matter if it's expected or not. this should be a surprise, it's original. no, who cares? either it works or it doesn't. whether it's expected or unexpected. there's just success and failure. and everything else is just smoke and mirrors. who and what we are, our people skills, language skills is the beginning and end of all of it.
